Born and raised in the Bay Area, Kate grew up enjoying outdoor activities which included horseback riding, kayaking, hiking and many more. One of her favorite past times was taking her daily walk through her neighborhood, Piedmont, and chronicling all the homes she passed – taking note of the styles, the scope of work being done, and the difference between the homes within the HOA and those not. She moved to Los Angeles after graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology. Kate began her real estate career at Hilton & Hyland in Beverly Hills where she held various different positions that yielded a breadth of knowledge surrounding all aspects of the real estate business. After working in the luxury market, Kate has experience and insight she is excited to bring to the Halton Pardee family. In her free time Kate enjoys hiking, kayaking in the Marina, and skiing during the winter season.
